I recently had a conversation with my roommate, and it got me thinking. Family, food, exercise, spirituality, self-care and more have been at the centre of her upbringing.

As you may have been able to tell, I haven’t been very thorough with my Count Your Blessings blog posts. After week 3, I got sick and developed a chest infection that lasted for a while. Once I got better, life kind of got non-stop. I reached the last few weeks of my contract and… Read More February Round Up — Count Your Blessings #4 (Asos, MT Fest UK & More)
